MyXC Abuse Prevention Policy

SafeSport Act

In 2018, Congress enacted a new Federal law, the "Protecting Young Victims from Sexual Abuse and Safe Sport Authorization Act of 2017 which specifically requires amateur sports organizations to train all adult volunteers who come into contact with children regarding the prevention and reporting of child abuse.  It is more commonly referred to as the SafeSport Act.  

MyXC Abuse Prevention Policy & Procedures

As directed by the law, MyXC has developed a Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policy as a foundation for a safe environment for kids, families and our volunteers.  The policy and procedures include the following:

  • All volunteers will now register through
  • MyXC will complete background checks on all club leaders and many of our coaches/volunteers
  • Explicit no 1:1 adult:child contact policy
  • Reporting procedure developed


All adults who are in regular contact with children or have positions of authority over children will complete the MyXC Abuse Prevention and Athlete Well-Being Training.  This training will also be made available to all parents/caregivers.

After completing the training, volunteers will need to complete the quiz to certify they have completed and understand the materials.
